Mount Horeb High School Reviews
Rating 3.74 out of 5 125 reviews
From my personal experience, I would say bullying was never an issue and many of the students are accepting of their peers. Some of the teachers are a hit or miss when it comes to being accepting though. Mount Horeb High School was one of the schools in the area that had its own major issue that outweighed the other ones and that was mental health. Something about that school just made you feel more depressed even though you could find where you belong quite easily. Maybe at the end of the day it’s just the idea that students feel lonely and there is only so much the staff and counselors can do about that. I did not hate my time there, but I wish there were more options when it came to electives to try out. That might look different now, but I would not be surprised if the everything remained the same besides the teachers and a few minor details.
Mount Horeb High School has a variety of opportunities for involvement through various clubs and sports. However, due to the small town community being involved in these can be somewhat exclusive and they are not always welcoming to new students joining. The school itself has been recently remodeled and is very nice. Overall, the new edition creates a much better learning environment and includes new equipment such as a planetarium in one of the science teachers rooms. Additionally, the new Principal and Vice Principal are very understanding and have made the school a better place. They give their students a lot more freedom than past administration, and treat them like the young adults that they are. In terms of diversity, the school lacks this in some ways. Most of the students attending are strictly white middle class males or females. Again, this is mainly due to it being located in a small town, so there is simply not as much diversity as you would find at a larger city school.
Mount Horeb High School has an excellent music program, especially band, but three choir and orchestra are great too. The food and facilities are also above average. The teachers are amazing, but college readiness is lacking. Very few AP courses are offered, and college counseling centers around community and state schools. Students aren’t taught much about the college application process. The clubs are good, but priority is clearly and heavily given to sports related activities over academic and volunteer based clubs.
